E it is
(1)(2) together just help to find the price of 1 dough and 1 cupcake.
Since we have no idea about the total number of Dough and Cup bought, we can't find the numb of Dough bought.

Given: XC + YD = 6.00
where X is the price of cupcakes, C is the number of cupcakes
Y is the price of doughnuts and D is the number of doughnuts

(1) 2X = 3Y - 0.1
---------------------
2 equations, 4 unkowns !
statement 1 is insufficient

(2) (X+Y)/2 = 0.35
-----------------------
again, 2 equations, 4 unkowns
statement 2 is insufficient

(1) + (2) together
-----------------------
3 equations, 4 unkowns
insufficient
